I remember ...

In spring 2004 Renato often went to Piediluco Lake, to work to the preparation of boat-races field. He noted a steep meandering valley while driving to Piediluco. Obviously he gave it a look deep inside, then phoned me togive the good news ... Some days after we were there together to explore that canyon. The bolts placed at the waterfalls showed us it was descended before, though among italian canyoneers no one seems to know about this little nice canyon.
